Elmer Danilovich

MShenay trying to pretend to be an old man, Male, 58, from In the Oak Forest

So I've got a [Birgir] CCS Modded 007tA in-bound and I'm thinking maybe an HE60 would be worthwhile! Jul 11, 2020 at 2:14 AM

        How did you do that? That is serious end-game territory.

        How? Umm I paid for it... 70/80 hour works weeks pile up over a year that and I was shocked at how quickly my Mid Fi stuff sold soo before you know it BAM a lot of end game magic was very obtainable

        Haven't bought the headphone yet but it's very tempting and within reach,

      Finally ripped off the Mid Fi band aide and made a few sales, now time to save up for a better DAC!

        For e-stat advise, the best place would be www.head-case.org, which is the home of all e-stat aficionados, including Spritzer.

        Sooooooooooooooooo I wound up getting a modded SRM 007tA and now it's time to sell some of my mid fi crap and buy a SR 009 to match my new amp! My 95X needs a compliment

        The results of my aforementioned experiment is first hand experience in that "prototypes" are fickle. Sometimes AMAZING other times... not so much and frankly unwavering consistency is just as important as sound quality

      I highly recommend the Vinyl of Metallica's S&M over the CDs, after some digging I've confirmed the dynamic range is audibly better

        The DVD is also way better than the CDs, although it's pretty rare. Picked mine up on eBay about 10 years ago. Has 4 diff audio tracks; lossy DD 5.1, PCM stereo, and lossy stereo of separate band/orchestra.

        It's a cheap meter. My house is small and with a very compact layout. HVAC and return are all setup in such a way to be loud as hell when it comes on.

        The old RS 3300099 is reliable to 30 dBA. I have several here and checked them all against the B&K 4231 and cross calibration at various SPL with ACO 7046 using pink noise through a Genelec 8030 at 25 cm. edit: at standard room temp only - accuracy reduced at other temperatures.

        I have a Check Mate CM 140 that I mounted to measure my ambient figure, I will admit the fridge is sorta loud. Enough that I cut it off to shoot videos, can't do that for listening everyday tho

        But I can get a consistent 39.4 - 39.8 reading in the middle of my office at night. 41.3-42 dBa during the day. [Also I rent]

        If you want the HF experience, go get it. You know what it is going to be. No surprises.

        I'd pass on anything from Audioquest, just because of dishonest audioquackery cable bollocks business model. But Dragonfly used to be ok, didn't it?

        @Torq has a wonderfully through write up on Cobalt on headphones.com, apparently the DF Red is a bit more behaved frankly I'm not a fan of the brand as DF Black was meh and now Cobalt is super ehh

        ... great candidate for simple mods too! And a pad swap can go a long way.

        Pad swaps seem to do a lot for Hifiman cans; just pad swapped my HE-560 and like it a lot more.

        HE6 mods and system synergy take quite a bit of time and testing to dial-in well for any given particular taste. It's a fickle headphone to work with and won't sound as good as a lot of other stuff out there just plugged into whatever you have around. Some could argue the investment of time and attention isn't worth it unless you know what sound you're going for.

        Well I had a modded HE 4 I LOVED, and I own an HE 560 [pad swap an silver cable] that I enjoy. So as some one who has and likes Hifiman Sound to an extent, I imagine the mods are what's needed to remove the faults I can't quite look past. Pad Swaps help a lot apparently

        An to be honest, neither my HE 4 nor my HE 560 have or had stock pads so it's a shame the stock pads seem to hold it back.

        For a $400 used headphone, no biggie. On a $1800 new yea pads are a cheap fix but why do I need them to begin with is my view point
